WWE.com stated the following about War Games’ return to professional wrestling:
“The WarGames name was made famous in sports-entertainment as one of the premier match types in the NWA and, later, WCW. Nicknamed “The Match Beyond,” WarGames was a battle between teams that was fought in two rings enclosed by a steel cage. The first WarGames was held during the NWA’s 1987 Great American Bash tour”
The following will be spoilers as to which wrestlers will participate in War Games. You’ve been warned.
The next round of NXT TV tapings was conducted last night at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida. During the tapings, not only was the return of War Games announced, but we also know the participants in the match. War Games will see three teams of three face off with one another. It will be NXT Tag Team Champions Sanity (Eric Young, Killian Dain, Alexander Wolfe) vs. The Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly, Bobby Fish) vs. Roderick Strong & the Authors of Pain (Akam, Rezar).
NXT Takeover: War Games will take place on Saturday, November 18 from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. Tickets go on sale Friday, October 13 at 11:00 am ET exclusively at www.NXTtickets.com.
